In the past 4 years, Dole keep exploring and insisting on providing better service for runners. In order to supply the fresh energy to runners in the race, bananas were sent to track in the early mornings. Considering supply convenience, banana had already been cut into bite-size before runners reaching the supply station. The volunteers handed out bananas to runners to avoid delaying their pace, and then runners could get the better performance. After reaching the end, the runners would have a delicious banana from the finish bag to replenish their energy. As of today, Dole has already offered 1,581,600 banana fingers to assist runners and cheer for health.
